I came to BOSS Because…

I first came to BOSS because I was looking for an environmental education career and thought I could enhance my skills by taking a BOSS course. My interest in ethnobotany and traditional living skills attracted me to BOSS; getting to hike in Utah’s deserts and mountains for 28 days helped to confirm my decision.

I Teach at BOSS Because…

I teach at BOSS because I love what I do! I believe in BOSS’s philosophy, and am happiest when I live it. I love guiding students toward personal growth and discovery, teaching traditional skills, and nature awareness. My passion is to learn and teach plant identification and values.
